Your Ficus will need a location which is fairly bright in order for it to do well indoors. Some shade is okay, but you do have to be careful as if the light levels are too low then in a short time your plant will tell you it's unhappy by shedding leaves. Some early morning or late afternoon sunshine is best.
For a thriving happy plant you will want to keep the soil moist.
It's an excellent plant to have around if you suffer from poor indoor air quality as like most ficus plants it cleans and filters the air of harmful pollutants.
